For company founders
In addition to helping companies to settle in the area and supporting existing companies, the WFMG is also committed to the promotion of start-ups, which are vital for a modern business location. The business ecosystem necessary for this is being created and maintained together with organisations such as the nextMG digitisation and start-up initiative and the Middle Lower Rhine chamber of industry and commerce.
The WFMG is the general point of contact for start-ups and people interested in setting up a business, providing support in the search for premises, information on funding options or networking opportunities with other local players, in particular small and medium-sized industrial companies, which continue to shape the business location. To this end, the WFMG is, among other things, a member of the Gründerregion Niederrhein (Lower Rhine start-up region), cooperates closely with the regional Startercenterand is a member of the jury for the start-up scholarship.
In spring 2019 we also had an image film created for the startup scene.
